Agreed. I think Fairway is much more descriptive than Control Driver, as well, but at least it is better than Long Range or Distance or Ultra Long Range or whatever Discraft uses these days.

Hoping it's not the wind, then I might have a chance to handle this thing. What weights?

I only see MVP discs on the weekend when out-of-towners come to play my home course. A lot of Innova lovers, though I did convert one hater. I know a bunch of people who would try them if someone sold them in the area.

When I throw my Ion and someone asks what disc was that I like to say "a putter," usually they will get a confused look on their face.

Also noticed the rim is slightly more shallow than my OLFs.

Damn I'm excited, but it doesn't look like mine will be here until tomorrow. It's 80 degrees and sunny here...

Had to stop throwing due to severe back pain caused from work last weekend. I'll get some comparison pictures up tho. Hit basket twice in a row during my short time throwing, also.

Man, I hope I can scare up some 168/169's. That would be cool.

If Mike C's Eagle comparison is right, and there is no reason to doubt him at all, then a fair amount of turn should be expected. Longer Eagle would be good for me.

What was the temp Mike? I was throwing in about 45* with 15mph winds. Threw them in tail, head, and cross winds. Getting comparison photos up in just a minute.
